In March, you can apply to SAMK to study in degree programmes taught in English. We have to offer six full-time study Bachelor´s degree programmes, two Bachelor´s degree programmes taught mostly online as distant studies, and one Master´s degree programme studied alongside work.

This spring you can apply for the first time to the degree programme in Mechatronics taught in English. Mechatronics education provides the student with in-depth knowledge of the structures of the equipment and systems that form an essential part of our modern life.

The entrance examinations of Bachelor´s degree programmes are arranged as follows: the degree programme in Nursing has a two-part online exam, and Industrial Management and Logistics degree programmes implemented as distant studies have an online entrance exam course as an entrance requirement. Students to other Bachelor´s degree programmes are selected based on their school certificates. An online entrance exam course is arranged to Master´s degree programme Welfare Technology.

There are 275 intake places to Bachelor´s degree programmes and 30 to Master´s degree programme next autumn. All the degree programmes that can now be applied to will start in August – September 2021.
